    Unit 52 Bull Tag

    See a lot selling for $2,000 -$2,500 here at all the hunting shops here in Albuquerque. A bit over priced for the low quality in a unit like 52 but people are buying them nonetheless

    Unit 52 muleys

    I hunt 52 every year for elk, deer, antelope, turkey, yotes, sheds ect... and I haven't seen a buck in the past 3 years during any of the hunts I've been on. Few does here and there but nothing to say this unit has a good deer herd whatsoever! A bit disappointed actually in the elk herd as well...

    Thanks Vin, appreciate it. I was pretty surprised when it came out! Unfortunately things got busy with school this fall and I ended up not posting the rest of the season. The fam ended up with 3 antelope and 2 elk in total for 2016. Ill post some pics up later. Thanks again!

    where do antlers end up

    ^ That's not the case all time. Found a huge deadhead in '15 that the G&F did not let me keep. About a 190" typical 4x4 muley. It was a mountain lion kill and fairly fresh too! They do not let you keep the big ones from what I have heard and from my own personal experience but the smaller...

    Lighted nocks

    LAST EDITED ON Oct-10-16 AT 06:48PM (MST)[p]Not sure whats up with your set up but the nocturnal are supposed to be activated when the string accelerates the arrow as well. Some of them are not waterproof though. Got caught in a early wet snow storm this season and got soaked. 1 out of the 5...

    Elk Growth on Game Cam Part II Pulled another one of my cameras and was actually surprised on the amount of activity I caught on the cam in just one week. I put this cam off a well used trail and got 466 images in 6 days! These are a few of my favorites! Lots of younger bulls...

    Fit of Kuiu pants

    I know that the Alpine pants definitely run a waist size bigger than the rest and I know that was a problem that Kuiu was aware of. So maybe they fixed it by now??? Also even though they say you won't notice the knee pads... you still do because I tend to get a bit sweaty on my knees in warmer...

    Quality boot help... Zamberlan Boots? Crispi?

    I've been in the market for some new boots and I'm considering getting some Zamberlan Outfitter GTX boots. I've been recommended Kenetrek boots but they're even more pricy and seem a bit bulky and a touch on the heavy side. Also have heard mixed reviews about their durability after 1 full...

    A bit late in the post but took my bow to the local shop "The Bow Doctor" and put new strings on it because it was way overdue for some new strings.

    Elk Growth on the Stealthcam (Early July) Just got myself a new stealthcam game camera and couldn't wait to test it out. I put it on a waterhole in the low country earlier in July for a couple days and I am very impressed with the results! Probably shouldn't have set it on the 3 shot burst...

    Hogwire custom bow strings

    Finally drew a decent archery tag in my home state of NM and noticed my bow (bowtech destroyer 340) needs some new strings. Seems like these Hogwire bow strings are the way to go. Anybody out there running hog wire bow strings on their stick launcher? If so what do you think of them? ElkSniper

    Bino Cases

    Also a fan of badlands. Not sure about them being loud but then again I have the newer design and I don't think it's that bad at all. As far at too much work taking them in and out... It beats those hornhunter, s4 lock, Sitka in accessibility.

    Best Hooded Down Jacket

    LAST EDITED ON May-25-16 AT 00:55AM (MST)[p]Not a fan of the Kuiu down. Immediately had problems (small tears) with it and sent it back. Also feel they go a little cheap with the down feathers and I really think they are cheaply made in general. It's the only product from the Kuiu line that I...

    Gobblers and Elk!

    Jims, Im thinking that they're pure merriams because we're located in the very northern part of NM. From some of the past birds we've killed, I think they have different colors much like a black bear just like how some are blonde/ black/ brown ect... That's my guess any way. The majority of the...

The rush from calling in one of these birds is a lot like calling in a screaming bull but yet at the same time its unlike anything else. I hunt NM...
